Case Studies

Hold Attention Grabbing Branded Marketing Activations with Sweeter



At Sweeter, we know that engaging consumers in the marketing process is the most effective way to elevate a brand’s credentials and visibility. With over 25-years in the marketing and advertising industries, plus 12 years as talented event producers, we have refined the exciting process of helping brands create life-long, enthusiastic and loyal customers. We do this through innovative marketing brand activations that are truly one-of-a-kind.



Bringing Brands to Life Through Marketing Activations



Making an impression on consumers is our strength and our team is committed to helping brands bring their vision to life at every marketing touchpoint - connecting consumers to their message. As an experiential marketing company, we utilize branded activations to help brands both market and advertise their products through interactive events.

We bring expert insight into creating unique experiences and moments out in the world that highlight what’s different and special about a brand. The branded marketing activations we produce invite consumers to enjoy a journey leading to purposeful purchases.


The Value of Experiential Marketing



Within the parameters of a traditional marketing campaign, a brand is too often showcased on a rather linear platform. Many companies rely on standard print, email, and digital campaigns to reach consumers.

At Sweeter, we function on a platform of engagement to reach consumers in a memorable way. Our expertise in event production allows us to provide branded event marketing experiences for our clients that are not only entirely customized, but also highly effective.

In a world where consumer’s attention is very much focused on instantaneous gratification, our branded event marketing activations take things a step further. These experiential events ask consumers to step fully into the marketing experience and have all of their senses engaged in the process!

The beauty of branded activations is that they can create an atmosphere of spontaneity and excitement while still providing a very guided journey for potential consumers towards a product purchase. As consumers are busy interacting with product experts, speaking with brand representatives, and indulging in the overall experience, they’re simultaneously creating a personal connection with the brand itself.

The Sweeter team knows what people will do for “free” - free swag and free food - for that, we have seen people stand in monsoon-like conditions connecting to the brand that is giving out “free”. Far from a standard food truck that you’ll see working on the corner, our branded food truck experiences, with eye-catching, custom designed truck wraps, are there to deliver deliciousness while our clients’ food and non-food brands connect with consumers.

When it comes to creating successful marketing brand activations, Sweeter is a one-stop-shop for all marketing event needs. Potential is limitless for brands that partner with our team and will find that Sweeter provides resources ranging from street teams & brand ambassadors, security details, custom menus & recipe development, branded food & service items, build-outs & fabrications, permit acquisition, and much more - all items that make the process easy, seamless and relevant.


Innovative and Comprehensive Branded Event Marketing



Clients who work with Sweeter look to us to be an all encompassing , creative partner resource, handling every aspect, to make the most of their branded marketing events and will find that working with our team is an effortless, pleasant and seamless experience. Our highly skilled professional team of problem solvers finds ways to overcome any and all challenges to create the most relevant and attention grabbing engagement possible - the word “no” does not exist at Sweeter. We work closely with our clients to make sure that their products, services, content and overall brand’s message are meaningfully showcased calling the most attention to the brands we work with. Sweeter devises interactive and engaging ways to attract consumers - be it through eye-catching branded food trucks or other WOW-FACTOR promotional vehicles and or through sought after swag or delicious food sampling that is handed out by our own fun, highly energetic, brand knowledgeable, super-engaging brand ambassadors.

Brands understand and know their DNA better than anybody. Sweeter knows how to take that brand’s knowledge and amplify a clear and concise message to consumers, cutting through the inherent blinders brands sometimes have that hold them back from seeing a larger vision. Our team has the experience, dedication, and creativity to seamlessly bring a brand’s message to life. For our clients, having their marketing services handled by one company that provides an all-encompassing solution, not only guarantees the event will go smoothly, but that the brand message is always authentically, cohesively highlighted.


Making the Most of Mobile Events



Sweeter specializes in brand activations and promotions, but it’s our mobile event activations and pop-up options that really elevate the immersive experience. We’ve seen incredible success for our clients through the use of wrapped food trucks and vehicles that are eye-catching and always drive brand awareness to new heights.

Our engaging large-scale mobile events aren’t exclusive to food trucks, but extend to many mobile marketing platforms. We’re happy to help clients create their ideal marketing experience through the use of Airstreams, kiosks, glass walled trucks, custom convertible shipping containers, and even pushcarts - but it doesn’t stop there!

Experiential marketing is a versatile platform that connects consumers to brands anywhere, anytime - indoors or outdoors. For our clients that are looking to produce an event in an indoor setting, we can just as easily create a one-of-a-kind experiential activation in a brick & mortar retail pop up location, shopping mall or convention center where we could bring in our brand ambassador team or even orchestrate a complete, full scale buildout


Connecting Consumers with Brands They Love



Today, making a connection between consumer and brand, where there is a dialogue between both, is key to building brand loyalty. At Sweeter, we know that creating memorable marketing experiences is the first step in letting consumers know a brand is worth loving and that the brand is listening.

Whether it’s a one-day event or a national tour, we take time to help our clients create memorable experiences that not only highlight their brand but help consumers identify with its uniqueness. We don’t put limits on the possibilities and can include everything from promotional giveaways and live music to celebrity guests handing out delicious treats in order to grab consumer attention!

We look to awaken a person’s every sense and capture the attention and imagination of the targeted consumer, leaving a brand’s long lasting, indelible impression - so much so that they will recall that experience later on when they seek to find that particular product, a service, or specific content.

We find that delectable treats are a fantastic strategy for stopping passers-by in their tracks at the events we produce, even for our clients whose products are not food-based. Connecting a concept through a relatively inexpensive and delicious food giveaway is a sure way to attract attention while making a product memorable.


The Benefits of Working with Professionals



When it comes to the successful production of a marketing activation, partnering with Sweeter makes the process seamless. Sweeter provides a fully-integrated approach to creating experiences that capture the minds, attention, and imagination of consumers.

Our options are super scalable which gives our clients the versatility they seek. While our attention grabbing trucks are seen by thousands each day and create unsurpassed brand recognition at events, our turnkey marketing solutions mean our clients never have to worry about the details—we handle it all!
